  • OBERON That very time I saw,—but thou couldst not,— Flying between the cold moon and the earth, Cupid, all arm’d: a certain aim he took At a fair vestal, throned by the west; And loos’d his love-shaft smartly from his bow, As it should pierce a hundred thousand hearts; But I might see young Cupid’s fiery shaft Quench’d in the chaste beams of the watery moon; And the imperial votaress passed on, In maiden meditation, fancy-free.
